I cloned my murdered beefsteak tomato plant in a jar of water. It rooted well, so I transferred it to my AG Deluxe with CropLampSurround lightscreen. The clone and its age-mate sister plant outside now (flowering):

Aerogarden Lightscreen Cherry Tomato 2013

 Le gasp. *Gisette* is trying a cherry tomato in an Aerogarden. Took me long enough, huh?  I want to show how the lightscreen works on a cherry tomato, since that's what most people have experience with. And a steadier, modest harvest would be nice. Full size tomatoes take an awfully long time per fruit.

 My latest indoor soil grow under all-CFL lights turned out all-peppers - one carmen, one mini red stuffing pepper. Last winter I had a tomato plus a carmen pepper in this enclosure, and kicked the pepper outdoors when it got warm, so the tomato had the enclosure to itself.

This year's peppers moved outdoors full-time at age 23 weeks, with fruit on board.

 Harvests (to 11/3): terminated just before first hard freeze

carmen: 47 (first green @ 15 weeks, first red @17 weeks)

Aerogarden Determinate Mid-Sized Tomato

In this grow (almost finished), I tried same lightscreen, different mid-size tomato variety. The concept was to offer more than one choice of tomato with the lightscreen product. And I'd never tried a determinate. And... that was probably the right choice.  The plant yielded 8 ripe tomatoes, that all ripened within 2 weeks of each other. It then started working on another flush of fruit, true. But I'd rather get a more steady stream of harvest.
